House Speaker John Boehner says there is a “long list” of candidates qualified to serve as presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s running mate, including Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, and Gov. Mitch Daniels of Indiana.

"There are a lot of people that I like. But this is a personal choice for Gov. Romney, and I'm confident that he'll have a running mate that will be helpful to the ticket," Boehner told CNN Chief Political Correspondent Candy Crowley in an interview scheduled to air Sunday. "I think the number one quality is, are they capable of being president in the case of an emergency?"

Rubio, a freshman tea partyer with Cuban roots, is seen as a top choice by many Republicans. And Portman and Daniels, who both served as budget director for President George W. Bush, are viewed as voices of experience and policy wisdom.
